I don't think this is in the Public Domain.
This series was produced for ITC Entertainment and ITC Entertainment's library was eventually bought by ITV Studios.
On 10 December 1998, Universal Studios' parent, Seagram purchased PolyGram for $10.2 billion. In early January 1999, Carlton Communications bought the ITC television and film library from PolyGram/Seagram for £91 million, which reunited the programme library of ATV and Central Television and doubled the stock of its library division Carlton International, by giving it a total of 15,000 hours of programming. Carlton chairman Michael Green said: 'The ITC library is a jewel in the crown. We can now unite it with the other gems from Britain's film and television heritage in our excellent library.' In 2004, Carlton merged with Granada plc to form ITV plc. ITV Studios continues to release ITC's original output through television and internet streaming repeats, books and DVD and Blu-ray releases.

Great Childhood Memories.
I love re-watching the Adventures of Robin Hood. I remember sitting in front of a ten inch black and white television and watching the series as a kid.
I particularly enjoyed this episode because it features the late Patrick Troughton as cousin William. Did you know that Patrick Troughton was the first actor to play the part of Robin Hood on British Television? This was long before he went on to become known as one of the best Doctor Whos. It is great to be able to relive my childhood through the archive.

25 Golden Minutes (Slight Changes made for spelling)
In this slightly-different to usual episode, Marian has a dream about her Cousin and Robin Hood, and is worried that it might turn out true. Sound and Picture are good. I hope more end up being uploaded.
Anyway, the dream turns out to be partly true, with the her cousin capturing Robin and trying to take him to be executed. Marian manages to get Robin saved in the end.
